When I moved to Austin many moons ago, the food wasn’t fancy and restaurant service was typically adequate at best. Over the last couple of decades, our food scene has transformed and we have an almost overwhelming number of great places to eat. How do you choose? For me, the deciding factor is usually the service.
The places that win my heart are the restaurants that value their front of house standards as much as those for the kitchen, making me feel welcome and comfortable without overdoing it. It’s service that lifts a good restaurant to a great restaurant, and it is the achilles heal for many places in Austin.
I was thrilled when Edible Austin let me profile a few exceptional folks who are putting their customers first every day. Cheers to the Forces at the Front of the House!
